ARISS Makes It Official: "Tremendously Successful" SuitSat-1 is SK

ARISS

(Feb 24, 2006) -- SuitSat-1 is now a confirmed "Silent Key." So says its sponsor, the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) program. In operation for more than two weeks, SuitSat-1 easily outlasted initial predictions that it would transmit for about one week. ARISS International Chairman Frank Bauer, KA3HDO, says the mission captured imaginations around the world, despite a much-lower-than-expected signal strength.

SuitSat Status (Feb 23)

Space News

From the SAREX reflector:
All,

SuitSat-1/Radioskaf/AO-54---the mission that has captured the imagination of people and students around the world---is now a confirmed silent key. The outreach, press requests and visibility of SuitSat was absolutely amazing and appears to be unprecedented for a ham radio event. While the press requests are just now starting to wane, we expect that you will continue to see SuitSat status reports and pictures in magazines, websites and other literature over the next few months. One metric which shows the interest---we had over 9 MILLION hits at the www.suitsat.org web site. Quite impressive indeed!!
Based on the reports we have received, the last confirmed reception of the SuitSat voice audio was on Saturday February 18 at 3:32 UTC by Bob King's station, VE6BLD in Canada. The last confirmed telemetry was received by Richard Crow's station, N2SPI in the USA. Richard copied the SuitSat-1 voltage dropping precipitously to a low of 18.3 volts before vehicle stopped transmitting. I have included Richard's compiled telemetry do*****ent at the end of this e-mail.
